Nessa Shares “A Stitch in Time”


Nessa’s genre-bending, breakout track “A Stitch In Time” details the redemption of a woman caught in an abusive relationship with her “drunken husband.” The track starts with an acoustic guitar which quickly fades in comparison to the very rhythmically driven bass part. The modern electric drums give the track a more mainstream vibe; however, the vocal style is clearly of the classic Celtic folk variety. Nessa continues to shatter expectations in the break-down sections of the song which feel influenced from the hip-hop universe.


Over the course of the song, Nessa takes their listener through a very detailed account of her protagonists retaliation plan of retaliating for years malignant behavior bestowed upon her. The most fascinating component of this detailed plan is her use of stereotypically “feminine” household items such as a sewing needle and thread, a rolling pin and a frying pan to carry out her redemptive blossoming. A true feminist anthem, this once docile woman who was literally falling mercy to the hand of her man, steps up and owns her power the way she best knows how – with well strategic intent and purpose.

Bryan Away is an artist that surely is on our radar in the New Year. His new EP, “Give In” is a charming release from start to finish that brings the soul and essence of his music to life. His songs are an immersive experience that bring his music to life. For the release Bryan called upon the legendary James McAlister to the table to produce.

You may know of McAlister from his work with Sufjan Stevens and Bryce Dessner of The National. With a stamp of approval (not that he needed any!), Bryan’s songs are heartfelt and captivating as each piece takes you on a wild and whimsical ride through his mind and soul. Based in Chicago, you can feel the spirit of his music within every listen. Showstoppers include “Pour One Out,” and the title track “Give In,” which you can watch and listen to below.

The 5-track EP packs a great deal of sonically alluring sounds that spans the themes of loss, longing and isolation…something that relates to most if not all on some level. His heavenly vocals and bold and steady instrumentation bring a bit of light into the darkness, as he carries us away one song at a time.
